No bleeding nothing, until a few days ago I started getting spotting and now I'm experiencing cramps? Is this normal? I missed my first period on them. Is this my second one? I'm worried and not sure if I should be :/ please help..
Yes it's normal. You are not having periods. A period is flushing out the lining of your womb, including an unfertilised egg.
You do not produce an egg when on Depo. What you are experiencing is break-through hormonal bleeding. This can last until you have your 3rd Depo shot. By then, it usually has stopped all together.
You may get all sorts of hormonal symptoms on Depo, such as pregnancy like symptoms (because Depo tricks your body into thinking you're pregnant, to prevent you releasing eggs each month), such as bloating, sort breasts, lower back ache (Depo softens the ligaments in your back, as if preparing it to expand to make room for a growing baby), mood swings etc. Most of these symptoms pass as you get your next couple of shots.
